June 23rd – Marcus Eddie Lecture

Growing up overseas as part of an Air Force family, Marcus did not have access to magic shops or clubs. Using a magic set he received as a gift from his parents and the few magic books he could find in the school library, Marcus began teaching himself the craft when he was just 12 years old. Building his illusions from toy boxes, tape and everyday items, Marcus took his childhood passion and turned it into his career.

Today, he is an 8-time, award-winning magician, including his win on the Syfy Channel’s magic competition, “Wizard Wars.”

He has appeared on “Penn & Teller Fool Us,” and is the creator of a large catalog of acclaimed, commercially released creations. Marcus also works as a consultant for magicians worldwide, including David Blaine on his television special, “Beyond Magic.”

Marcus Eddie’s original magic will leave you stunned, and his lecture will leave you inspired.

Time: 2pm
Location: Langford Firehall #2 (3205 Happy Valley Road)

April 14 – Jason Ladanye Lecture


Jason has performed at Resort Casinos like Turning Stone, Foxwoods, and Mohegan Sun, and at corporate events for Fortune 500 companies including Fuji Films, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, and General Motors. He has performed at the famous Magic Castle and has consulted for the hit Broadway show, Cheers Live. He has appeared on ABC’s 20/20 and Inside Edition exposing card cheating scams. In 2013, Jason released his first book Confident Deceptions. In 2018, Jason released his second book Game Changer.

Lecture Overview 

Jason Ladanye is known for creating high-impact card tricks that play like miracles for lay audiences. These aren’t “pick a card” tricks. These are effects that make you look like a world-class card mechanic. Jason is constantly creating new and original plots that are meaningful and very entertaining. These effects are practical and most importantly, they don’t all rely on knuckle-busting sleight of hand. In this lecture, Jason will teach several killer effects. In addition to teaching the mechanics of the tricks, Jason will share his insights on how to make your show one that the audience will never forget. Learn how to connect with your audience and how to get them hooked—and keep them hooked. He’ll also cover topics such as effect construction, audience management, magic theory, misdirection, dealing with hecklers, developing your character and persona, how to maximize the impact of every trick, and much more! Books, DVD’s, close-up mats, practice mirrors, and lecture notes will all be on sale as well.
